Photos of Oliver Peterson were used on a fake Facebook profile which contacted unsuspecting accounts, in what is known as a “romance scam.”

All efforts to have the fake account removed were ignored by the social media giant.

Social expert, Ming Johanson, says these events are more common than most people think.

“I would love to say that I don’t hear this very often, but I do,” she said. “Probably at least once a week.”

Listen below to hear the full situation and how Ming Johanson explains the problem.
